Message for the Day….” Man always craves for bliss. The first requisite for achieving Supreme Bliss is a pure heart. One’s heart, which should be white and pure like milk, is today filled with bad thoughts and feelings.”

Man always craves for bliss. The first requisite for achieving Supreme Bliss is a pure heart. One’s heart, which should be white and pure like milk, is today filled with bad thoughts and feelings. Spiritual exercises begin with the purification of the heart and then transforming it into an ocean of milk. When the heart is filled with satwic (pure) qualities, it becomes like a milky ocean. Only then does it become a worthy dwelling for the Lord (Vishnu) whose abode is described as Ksheera Sagara (the Ocean of Milk). But by yielding to tamasic and rajasic(dull and aggressive) impulses, people today have turned their heart into ksharasagaram, a salty ocean. In the salty ocean, we have sharks and whales. Likewise, in the heart of the evil-minded, bad qualities like lust, anger, greed and envy flourish. It is a folly to give room to such evil forces. They must be removed totally so that the Lord may find His rightful place in a heart that is pure and holy.

Message for the Day…. ” Some people when faced with difficulties think that God is punishing them. It is a mistake to think so. God never punishes anybody.”

Some people when faced with difficulties think that God is punishing them. It is a mistake to think so. God never punishes anybody. It is only the king who gives punishment, not God. God is love; He always gives only love. The punishment you suffer is the result of your own actions. God neither punishes you nor protects you. You are punished by your own sins and protected by your own good deeds. You may utilise light for writing inappropriate accounts or for reading the holy Ramayana. But light is not affected by what you do. Similarly God is the eternal witness. He is like the light, unaffected by your actions, good or bad. Be it pleasant or unpleasant, you have to face the consequences of your actions. So, do not indulge in bad actions. Always do good, be good, and see good. This is the way to God. Do not say, “I will try”; you must do it.

Small Hands….Big Hearts….Kerala kids break their piggybank for Flood Relief….

Kochi siblings Haroon and Diya donated all the money in their baby bank down to the last penny to kids in relief camps who lost books and bags in the Kerala floods.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday, Kochi kids Haroon and Diya broke their piggy bank and donated all their money to the Chief Minister’s flood relief fund in Kerala. The brother-sister duo had been carefully collecting and depositing into their piggy bank every single penny they have been receiving since 2016.

“They were in the habit of keeping safe each and every coin and note including the money they received from adults for Vishu and Eid for the past two years,” DC quoted their mother Fathimma, a Kalloor resident, who shared this incident in a Facebook post.

Speaking to TNM, Fathimma said that Haroon, a UKG student, and Diya who is in 4th standard, had been noticing all the buzz in the house for the past two days to help flood relief victims. All of this got them wondering how they too could chip in.

“We were collecting clothes, buying rice and other stuff and putting them in small packets to be sent to the camps. They were noticing this and then they came up to me and asked me how they could help,” said Fathimma

Their gesture delighted their mother who said that she was surprised as she knew how fiercely protective her children were of their piggy bank and its cash contents.

“The piggy itself was handmade by Haroon during one of his summer camps. I once went to take some change from their bank as I did not have the exact amount to buy something and I nearly ran for my life when they found out,” Fathimma wrote in her Facebook post.

Haroon’s and Diya’s contribution to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund is 2210 rupees. They told their mother that this amount was to help kids who lost their books and bags in the floods.

Fathimma also stated in her post that her family wished to contribute to the CM’s relief fund and challenge the alleged hate campaign that discouraged Keralites from contributing to the CM Flood Relief Fund.

Kerala witnessed unprecedented rainfall over the past few weeks resulting in flooding in 10 out of 14 districts in the state. As many as 37 people passed away due to rain related calamities and over 1 lakh people have been left homeless due to the floods caused by the opening of dams in different districts and landslides in Idukki and Wayanad.

An immediate relief fund of Rs 100 crore has been granted to Kerala by the Centre. The State had however asked for Rs 1220 crore as immediate relief as it has suffered material losses to the tune of Rs 8000 crore in the floods.

Keralites are now coming together to help those who have lost their homes and have been put up in relief camps in different schools across the state.

Message for the Day…. ” Everyone must love their motherland. But that should not lead to hating the other’s motherland. Hence you must pray, “May all the world be happy and peaceful.””

The flag is the symbol of victory, celebrating the joy of Independence. Each nation has its own flag. Pay attention to another flag to symbolise another laudable victory over one’s lower instincts, impulses, passions, emotions and desires – the flag that has to be unfurled in every human heart. When you achieve that victory, you will become the true inheritors of Bharatiya culture. Everyone must love their motherland. But that should not lead to hating the other’s motherland. Hence you must pray, “May all the world be happy and peaceful.” Always remember that your peace and happiness are linked with the world’s peace and happiness. Any act of hatred or violence committed by you will pollute the atmosphere of the world. When you adore any living being, the adoration reaches God, for He is in every being. Insult any living being and the insult too reaches God. So, expand love towards all, everywhere.

வாரம் ஒரு கவிதை…. ” திராவிட சூரியனே …. “

திராவிட சூரியனே …
——————-
“சௌம்யனுக்கு பின் வந்த சாதாரணன் நான்” என்று
சொன்னவன்  நீ! “சௌம்ய” ஆண்டு நிறைவுற்று பின்
மலர்ந்த ” சாதாரண ” ஆண்டு புத்தாண்டு கவி அரங்கில் !
வானொலி வழி உன் மொழி கேட்டேன் அன்று நான்,
ஆண்டு ஐம்பது ஓடி விட்டது இன்று !
“சௌம்யன்” அண்ணாவுக்கு பின் வந்த  ” சாதாரணன் ” நான் என்று
 நீ சொன்ன மந்திர வார்த்தை கட்டிப் போட்டு விட்டது  என்னை
 உன் கவியரங்க பேச்சு கேட்க அன்று முதல் !
நீ என்ன சாதாரணமானவனா ..?
சோதனை பல கடந்து சாதனை பல புரிய இந்த மண்ணில்
உதித்த திராவிட சூரியன் அல்லவா !
உன் எழுத்தும் பேச்சும் உசுப்பிவிட்டது
திண்ணையில் தூங்கிய ஒரு தலைமுறையை !
உன் மொழி புரியாத பிற மொழி தலைவர்களும்
உன்னுடன் சேர்ந்து நடந்தார் நீ காட்டிய வழியில் !
அது உன் அரசியல் ராஜ தந்திரம் !
எங்கிருந்து கிடைத்தது உனக்கு ஒரு நாளில்
இவ்வளவு நேரம் ! பன்முகத் திறன்
அத்தனையும் சுறுசுறுப்புடன்  இன்முகம்
காட்டியே நீ செய்த வேகம் ஒரு புரியாத
புதிர் ! எனக்கும் , என்னைப் போல் பலருக்கும் !
கணிப்பொறியும் அடிக்கடி படிக்குமாம்  பாடம்
உன்னிடம் …அதன் நினைவுத்திறனையும்
வேகத்தையும் கூட்டிக்கொள்ள !
ஒய்வு எடுக்கப் போகிறேன் என் அண்ணாவுடன்
என்று சொல்லி வங்க கடலோரம் துயில் கொள்ளும்
நீ …இளம் காலை சூரிய உதயத்தில் நீயும்
சேர்ந்துதானே மலர்ந்து சிரிக்கிறாய் இன்னும் !
உதய சூரியன் நீ என்றும் உன் தம்பிகளின்
இதய சூரியன்தான் !
திராவிட சூரியன் உனக்கு ஏது அய்யா
அஸ்தமனம் ?

Message for the Day…. ” One should not have the narrow feeling that one’s family alone should be happy. Without the world, where is the family? “

The eyes, the ears, the nose and the hand are the different limbs of the body. Body is a limb of the society. Society is a limb of mankind. Mankind is a limb of nature. Nature is a limb of God. It is because of the impact of modern education that man is misusing his limbs. The Vedas teach that all the education that one acquires should be utilised for the welfare of society. The Vedas say, Sarvaloka hite ratah (one should involve in the service of society). Sarvajnanopa sampannah (one should be a treasure of wisdom), and Sarva samudita gunaihi (one should cultivate all good qualities). After education, one should work for the welfare of society and the world at large. One should not have the narrow feeling that one’s family alone should be happy. Without the world, where is the family? Man and his family are dependent on society and the world at large. So, the individual and the family can be happy only when the world is safe and secure.

Message for the Day…. ” If you have total faith in God, you will be able to overcome all difficulties. Never blame God for your difficulties. You are bound to face the consequences of your actions, whether good or bad! “

In this journey of life, first and foremost, you need to have self-confidence. Today people suffer because of lack of self-confidence. There may be a few difficulties in your way, but do not be unduly perturbed. You should face all hardships with courage and conviction. Only then you will attain true happiness. If you have total faith in God, you will be able to overcome all difficulties. Never blame God for your difficulties. You are bound to face the consequences of your actions, whether good or bad! But if you earn God’s grace, even difficult circumstances will yield good. So develop faith in God more and more. You trust your friend whom you met only a few years ago, but not God who is with you, in you, and around you, throughout your life. You trust the washerman and part with your valuable clothes. Why then is it hard for you to have firm faith and trust in the omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient all-powerful Divinity?
